Spare a Rose Ukraine-Save a Life

Spare a Rose for Ukraine will run throughout March 2022, with all donations earmarked to support people with diabetes in and out of of Ukraine.

What is Spare a Rose?
In 2013, a group of diabetes advocates from the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) came together to start a project that would support people with diabetes in under-resourced countries. This campaign is Spare a Rose and over the last 9 years, almost USD$400,000 has been raised for Life for a Child, all going to provide insulin and diabetes supplies to children and young adults with type 1 diabetes. In addition to raising funds, Spare a Rose has raised awareness in the diabetes community of this important charity and the great work they do.

2022 heralds a new chapter in the Spare a Rose story.

This year, we look at how we can support people with diabetes who ‘age out’ of childhood and youth programs that have an upper age limit for recipients or who develop diabetes as adults. Type 1 diabetes is incurable, hence the need for insulin and related supplies and care is lifelong.

And so, this year we are launching Spare a Rose, Save a Life.

Donations from Spare a Rose will now be directed to Insulin for, a registered charity that provides insulin, other diabetes supplies, education and advocacy to many of the under-resourced countries supported by Life for a Child and our Spare a Rose program. Insulin for Life and Life for a Child already partner on various projects and share the same goals of easing and saving the lives of people with diabetes in disadvantaged regions.

Spare a Rose attracts many smaller donations which, when put together equals many thousands of dollars, showing the impact even the smallest donation can have.

Spare a Rose is a campaign for the community, by the community. Every donation counts. Join us.
